The leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucus in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu has raised concerns over some former ministers still holding on to their ministerial positions even though their 1st term in office is over.

This comes after President Akufo-Addo charged some former ministers to maintain their respective positions pending the appointment and subsequent approval of new ministers for his second term in office.

These former ministers include Ken Ofori Atta, who was the Minister of Finance, Alan Kyerematen who was the Minister of Trade, the Minister for Local Government Hajia Alima Mahama, and former Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

But speaking in an interview on Joy Prime’s On the Record Monday, Mr Iddrisu described it as illegal.

Citing the Supreme Court ruling in J. A Mensah versus Attorney General 1997, the Tamale South MP stressed that there is nothing like ‘acting’ or ‘holding’ Minister.

For him, until prospective Ministers of State go through the constitutional processes they cannot hold themselves as Ministers.

“I have seen some ministers still hold themselves about as if they are Ministers. That is unlawful, that is illegal and unconstitutional. As we speak today, Ghana has no Ministers.

“The President got it wrong, their mandate has elapsed and until they are nominated go through vetting, secure approval of Parliament, and they cannot hold themselves as Ministers. So as far as we are concerned, there is nothing like Acting Minister and the Supreme Court does not recognize such a position.”

Commenting on the military barging onto the floor of Parliament during the inauguration of the 8th parliament, the NDC leader questioned the authority with which the Defence or Interior Minister gave the order.

As far as he is concerned, as of midnight January 7, all Ministers had lost their mandate to exercise such rights, therefore, an inquiry will be initiated to understand if the conduct is acceptable.

PLEASE HELP! The Shocking Thing I Saw In My Father’s Wardrobe (Should I Be Worried?)

Hello guys, the background behind this story is lengthy so to spare you the trouble I’ll jump straight to the point.

My father although he has his flaws is a very religious, and I dare say principled man in some aspects.

He never misses church service. Went to bible school.

At one point he was even a house fellowship leader. He prays and fast often.

So on this day I was standing in the doorway to my dads room.

He wanted to send me on an errand ”I think”, so he opened his wardrobe to get the money.

Immediately he opened his Wardrobe I saw a BAT…yes BAT hanging upside down right there in his wardrobe.

In shock, I jumped and shouted

”daddy see bat see bat !!!”.

Guess what he did. He simply smiled and gently closed his wardrobe.

I have never been this confused. I saw a bat hanging upside down in his Wardrop and all he did was smile and gently closed the door.

I don’t know what to make of it. I have already concluded, there is no way on earth this is from God.

Up until this time I have never seen a bat up close in real-time.

The closest I’ve been was to watch them on television. Contemplate how scared and confused I am now.

I picked up an excuse and ran out of the house to go stay with my relative. It’s been a week since I left, and I’m still too scared to go back.

What do you folks make of this? How can a man who prays and fast and attends bible school have a BAT in his wardrobe? WTF !!

What Do You Think I Should Do?

It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney.

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.
